A trip to Bakersfield is on tomorrow’s agenda. An x-ray and follow-up appt. with the Urologist for Robert and a visit to JoAnn’s, BestBuy and Walmart for me. I’ll be shopped out by the time I get finished, but it’ll be good to have the things I need for projects. I received an e-mail from the manager of the Tehachapi Depot Railroad Museum gift shop and she says absolutely everything I’ve made has sold and her shelves are empty. Take a hint!
I sent in the one colored pencil roll with Robert when he went to the Depot today. Tuesdays are Signal Crew work days. Today is the first day he’s driven himself to the Depot, and the first time in ages he’s showed up at the regular starting time. He said there was a full crew there today, which is nice to hear, as we had one member who’d been out having health issues for the past couple of months. Robert isn’t the only one who’s had health problems these past few months. It was good to know everyone was back in the swing of things.
I’ve been sitting here, watching the sky grow dark and the steady stream of headlights coming up the highway. My sleep cycle is often hit or miss, so at times I find myself up in the wee hours of the morning. I watch the world go by from my office window and think to myself that I’m glad I’m retired and don’t have the pressures of work. I appreciate the efforts of people who are still working, knowing that they’re doing what I used to be able to do, but can do no more.
Enough musing about the world outside my window…I have one quilt layered and pinned, ready for quilting. I’m going to get off of this computer and get to sewing.
May you be blessed; be safe, be well and please be happy. Be sure to tell those you love that you love them. Be grateful to those who serve — in the military, or taking your meal order, or ringing up your purchases at the store. Wherever someone is doing something to make your life better — appreciate their being where they are and for doing what they do.
